Inquiry into Children Affected by Parental Incarceration – Report Tabled

Aug 4, 2022 | Advocacy, Motions, News

This is very important to me. I want to thank our committee for referring this. This is a report for a boy that I know, my sister’s boy, who we failed.

The damage and the pain that these kids have damages them for life.

I want to thank those who shared their stories and made me cry again. It is becoming a bit of a theme; I do cry a lot.

But this is so important, and we certainly felt no-one knew.

These kids are the victims, the invisible victims, of crime, and we owe them.

We cannot desert these kids, and I am so proud of the work they have done.

I want to thank Ms Patten. I apologise to Ms Patten; I am a difficult unit to keep focused.

But with everything that happens in this place and whatever happens after 26 November, I am really proud of this.
